Cannabis Can Treat Bladder Pain, Inflammation
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, November, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
A new study published in the Journal of Neurology has found that activation of the body’s CB2 receptors has the potential to treat bladder pain and inflammation, and can increase bladder urinary frequency.
For the study, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison used mouse models to examine whether or not activation of CB2 receptors (something which cannabis does naturally) can treat serious bladder issues; the results were quite clear that it does.
“Treatment with a selective CB2 agonist reduced severity of established acrolein-induced cystitis and inhibited bladder inflammation-associated increased referred mechanical sensitivity and increased bladder urinary frequency”, states the study’s abstract.
Researchers conclude: “Our data indicate that CB2 receptor is a potential therapeutic target for treatment of painful inflammatory bladder diseases.”

Medicated Rocky Road
Category: Recipes | Posted on Fri, November, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
Treats like this make great gifts. They're able to be wrapped up and tied with a bow, delivered to friends and family (If they so choose to medicate). Since Halloween has passed and the next holidays include lots of eating, it makes sense to make some Rocky Road for the holidays. Or maybe not for the holidays... Maybe you just want these treats for yourself!
What You'll Need;
5 tablespoons of cannabutter
1 cup unsalted nuts (you can pick your favorite)
2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips
4 cups marshmallows cut in half (get white and pink marshmallows!)
1/2 cup cherries
1/2 toasted coconut
Get a cookie tin and use 1 tablespoon of the cannabutter to grease the pan. The rest of the cannabutter is for the recipe itself. After that's done, take the chocolate chips and put them in a bowl in the microwave. Heat them up until they melt, stirring them every 30 seconds until they're liquid. Add the remaining cannabutter to the chocolate chips and continue to heat for 15 more seconds or until the butter melts. Once everything has melted, stir together well.
After the chocolate and butter have been mixed, pour in the marshmallows, nuts, coconut, and cherries until everything is even. Your mixture will look somewhat like a tar pit with things still stuck in it. Pour your mixture on to the pan that you have set up. Then, stick it in the fridge! Let it sit in there until it's firm! Then, cut the treats in to medium squares. Ready to be served! Enjoy!
